An Oregon man faces a lawsuit of more than 2,750 years imprisonment after he allegedly confessed to several years of sexual abuse against a child, which began when the little girl was just 6 years old.
According to KOMO News, David John McCutcheon, 39, has been charged with 70 counts of first-degree rape, including 40 counts of first-degree sodomy and 110 counts of criminal mistreatment. McCutcheon was apprehended earlier this month by Cottage Grove police.
In the state, rape is seen a grave offense as it carries a compulsory minimum prison time of 25 years. The usual mandatory sentence for sodomy is eight years, but for children younger than 12, it’s as high as 25 years.
The 70 counts of rape multiplied by the mandatory minimum sentence would amount to at least 1,750 years, if he’s convicted. McCutcheon could face an extra 1,000 years if convicted on all 40 counts of sodomy.
The case began late last month following a report to police in Eugene, about 23 miles north of Cottage Grove. The latter city though is the location of the alleged crimes.
McCutcheon was interviewed by authorities last week, during which he allegedly admitted to having committed the crimes. He was then arrested Tuesday in Oregon, according to online records, and arraigned the following day.
McCutcheon’s next court appearance is scheduled for July 16.
